I’m alive! This year has been so busy, full of ups and downs. From March to June I traveled a lot. From Los Angeles to Atlanta to Rhode Island. I am still recovering. It was a fabulous and amazing experience but it took a toll on me emotionally but mostly economically. Traveling made me realize how much I missed the people I visited and the amount of joy that traveling gave me. Traveling brought me so much joy but also a measure of sadness to have to get back to my regular routine. Working a job (that I like) 8-5 five days a week is not what I wanted for my life. With that being said, I do have a good job and I like it enough to know that it will be difficult to find another as good as this one.
Economically, my pockets were completely drained and around the same time my husband lost his job. He’s since found one but we are still really behind and struggling to survive. This has left us downhearted but not defeated. I have been finding comfort and strength in the scriptures. Specifically Mathew 6:31-33
Mathew 6:31-33 31 So never be anxious and say, ‘What are we to eat?’ or, ‘What are we to drink?’ or, ‘What are we to wear?’ 32 For all these are the things the nations are eagerly pursuing. Your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.33 “Keep on, then, seeking first the Kingdom and his righteousness, and all these other things will be added to you. 34 So never be anxious about the next day, for the next day will have its own anxieties. Each day has enough of its own troubles.
While it is easy to focus on all the things that are wrong, you will find exuberance when we only focus on today. Enjoy today, survive today, do your best today. These trails do not last forever but we definitely can survive with a measure of joy. Come what may, tomorrow is a new day!
